Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden (concussion) and DE Randy Starks (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 27. OG Joel Bitonio (ankle) was limited during practice, while QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) and SS Donte Whitner (concussion) fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is on track to be the starting quarterback against the Baltimore Ravens this week. McCown has played well at times this season and could be a cheap option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Hawkins ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will have to pass their concussion tests before being cleared, so there is a good chance that they will miss the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens. Gary Barnidge ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and Travis Benjamin ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) are the only pass catchers that owners should consider from this team.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Gabriel ($2,000, 4.0%) haven't done a whole lot this year, but Hawkins is a more reliable option. Neither should be started in seasonal leagues or on FantasyScore, though.

Fantasy Tip: McCown will return as starter this week and has a great matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. He's not the most reliable starting fantasy quarterback, but he's a good value play on FantasyScore at $4,500 (9.0% of cap).

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's tenure with the Browns may not be over, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "I certainly hope not," Pettine said, when asked if Manziel has played his last game as a Brown. "He's made great progress and there was no better proof than last Sunday against Pittsburgh. But sometimes, you gotta take a step back to take a few forward. We told him yesterday - this isn't a dead end. This is a hurdle. It's an obstacle. So, part of success in athletics is dealing with adversity, and this will be an example of it."
Fantasy Tip: Josh McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) takes on the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. He's at a really cheap price on FantasyScore, and McCown threw for 457 yards and two touchdowns against them earlier in the season. There have been worse ideas than taking a flyer on him this week.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is by far the Browns' best and most productive wide receiver this year. He's still not a bad play with McCown starting; his targets may not just be as deep. Benjamin is a good start this week versus the Baltimore Ravens despite the change at quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: With McCown starting, Barnidge ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could see an increase in opportunities, particularly near the end zone. Barnidge scored five times with McCown under center and just twice with Manziel starting. Barnidge is definitely worth starting in FantasyScore lineups against the Baltimore Ravens.

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson may be in line for more production with QB Josh McCown returning as starter. In the six games in which McCown started and Johnson caught a pass, Johnson averaged 5.5 catches and 74.1 total yards and scored twice.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) performed substantially better with McCown than when Johnny Manziel was starting. He is a good flyer this week against the Baltimore Ravens, especially in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: A video recently surfaced showing Manziel partying, which very well may have played a role in Manziel's demotion. McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was playing well before being sidelined by injuries this season. He may be rusty, but he's worth consideration on FantasyScore against a vulnerable Baltimore Ravens defense.

Fantasy Tip: Now the Browns are once again unsure if Johnny Manziel or Josh McCown will start Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens. The matchup is a great one, but with Hawkins ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Gabriel ($2,000) questionable to play, you should look to avoid them everywhere.

Fantasy Tip: McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) would have a midrange matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. His numbers are better than Johnny Manziel's, but they are devoid of the wow factor you can find elsewhere on FantasyScore.
